Exclusive Video: Arlen Specter Credited Santorum With ‘04 Win

Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum has been forced to defend his endorsement of moderate Republican turned Democrat Arlen Specter in the 2004 Pennsylvania Senate primary. Santorum downplays his close connection to his former Senate colleague, but in this video of a fall 2006 fundraiser — shot by Stephen Robert Morse for an upcoming documentary and provided to BuzzFeed — Specter says, “Without his help I would not have been reelected, and I’m going to use every once of my energy to spread the word about what a good man he is.”
